Since we took down our Easter Egg garland after the holiday, my bright entry way mirror has been sad without a craft decorating it. (Especially since my entry way table must remain bare with curious toddler hands in reach of its top!) With summer here, it needed something bright and colorful so I turned to my trusty crafting assistant and asked if she wanted to paint. Her response: “YAH!!!!!!!!!!!” The girl loves to craft, what can I say?
I set her up in her familiar high chair and black smock and grabbed our watercolor supplies.
She loves to “dip dip dip” the brush in the paint and spread it all around, even grabbing two brushes for some extra fun!
Before long, blank sheets of paper were covered in beautiful strokes of watercolor goodness from a cheap set bought at the dollar store.
I made a quick popsicle shape template and once the sheets were dried, I traced the template all over the back of the sheets.
Brielle helped me cut out the shapes (aka sits on my lap and curls one finger around the scissor handle). Next, she helped me glue mini popsicle sticks on the back. I was surprised and pleased to see how well she did with gluing!
With just a quick hole punch on top and some extra ribbon from our stash, we were able to make a quick and simple kid crafted popsicle garland to welcome summer and guests into our home! The best part? Brielle always walks by and when you admire the garland aloud she says “I made it!”
